Customer Question
My husband pressed...

My husband pressed buttons on the tv and now just static no picture. When pressing input it goes on hdmi 4 sometimes on cable analog 44. Tried calling cable put couldn't help. No technician for 2 days.

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of your television? And have you done any troubleshooting yourself?

Sharp and we have been pressing every button we can with no use. Cable reset the box twice and still didn't help/ he uses both tv remote and cable remote. He is 75 and a little dementia and doesn't know what he pressed.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

No on the menu nothing else works except the input button. can't even change channels on the box.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

He was watching normal tv untill he played with the remote buttons. It has been this way for 3+ hrs

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Can you please tell me exactly where, on the back of the tv, the cords from your cable box are plugged in at, such as hdmi1, hdmi2, video1, rf, antenna, etc?
